Canon PIXMA iP4200 printer installed on Linus Fedora system and works beautifully

I downloaded the iP4200_Linux_260.tar.gz package from to the Fedora desktop and clicked on the package. The driver must have installed itself automatically somehow to the right place, because when I turned the Canon PIXMA iP4200 printer off and then on again, a window came up saying that I had plugged in a Canon iP4200 printer and asked me to select a PrinterConfiguration amongst a group which now included "Device URl: usb://canon/iP4200" and "Make & Model: Canon iP4200 Ver. 2.6" (which had not been in the list of Models given before this). Navigating to System > Admin > Printing > Printer Configuration, "Device URl: usb://canon/iP4200" and "Make & Model: Canon iP4200 Ver. 2.6" now appeared on the Printer Configuration window, and when I clicked on "Make Default Printer" then "Default Printer is Canon-PIXMA-iP4200" came up and when I clicked on "Print Test Page" it printed out beautifully.
